The product was difficlt to use in small area on the side of seats due to hot sealer. It looked ok for about 2 weeks then it cracked and peeled. I would not recommend this product.

..and the vision of a someone who's misplaced their bifocals. Unless the color of the item requiring repair EXACTLY matches the premixed colors, you're gonna be mixing colors til the cows come home to come up with the right shade. Aside from the color, it looked like a patch job as the texture didn't match. Also, application wore off quickly and item reverted back to the condition it was before I struggled with this. Save yourself the aggravation. Put the money toward a replacement or a throw to cover the tear/hole.

I'm quite happy with the repair I got from this kit. I had a big tear (1/2" x 3") in my vinyl car seat. This kit had everything I needed and the repair came out pretty good: you can tell it's patched, but I'd say it's 80% or so. Looks better than the piece of electrical tape I had on there before. For the price it can't be beat.

One advantage of my situation was that my seats were black so I did not need to do any color mixing. I could see how it would be difficult to get a good color match on a non-standard color.

I had a leather sofa with numerous breaks in the vinyl that is used for the sides of the cushions.
This is quite common with leather furniture. I sealed the breaks with the vinyl repair glue. Then the next day I mixed up a batch of color using my own recipe to match. I had a burgundy sofa. Seemed to work OK. Could not find out what the powdered hardener was for or how much to add. No instruction at all. Customer service wouldn't answer, so I did not use it. It seemed to cover OK. I used the heating tool as discribed. You can hardly notice where I fixed it.

the repair of the cracked plastic or naugahyde seat appeared to work, but the appearance of the repair did not come out as in the sample picture that came with the product.

Highly recommend this to people with small cracks in their upholstery. If you have a grand canyon on your dash this is no help to you.

This item is complete crap. After following all the directions by the letter for a very small tear in my black leather car, it looked worse after the 'fix' than it did before. The black was lighter than my car interior and looked horrendous after its application. I even tried using some black shoe polish to darken the spot up a little but nothing worked. Eventually I just scrubbed the area with some cleaning wipes until most of the product was removed and almost restored to the condition it was in before using the leather repair kit. Don't waste your time or money, you won't be fooling anyone. In fact, you will only draw more attention to the spot.

I think this is probably a good product, just not for the application for which I needed it. My pickup seat has a tear in the material where it hits the hard plastic of the seat bracket, it tore because each time the seat cushion is compressed the material would rub on the plastic. The repair kit does not provide a durable enough fix for this situation.
